Anyone else *still* waiting on placement? I'm getting nervous, did I somehow miss an email despite haunting my inbox daily? Am I going to get un-hired? Lol this is your brain on d̶r̶u̶g̶s̶ bar prep

I contacted the recruiting coordinator at the end of May and I was told it could be a few months, since the hiring is based off either attrition or new FT positions. They did tell me that if we’re finding out later in the process, we can expect about a month’s notice. I’m preparing for the worst and planning on finding a temp job through December or so.

When did you say you could start? I’m trying to determine what is considered “later in the process.” I told them I could start in August, so I thought I’d have my placement by now, but everyone I’ve talked to who said they could start in August is still waiting.

I gave them a September 1 start date, so I imagine that's why I'm still waiting. Oooh a month out is rough for finding apartments, depending on where we're placed.

Interesting that some of us gave similar start dates yet we all haven't received a placement. I said I could start right after the bar exam and that's when I start. Maybe it's because of the locations and other preferences?

I got my placement! I asked to start in August.

I’m not doing the 8/1 professionalism course though, it was full when I went to check after getting my placement.
